Hi, I found this ammonite at Port Mulgrave yesterday. I know it's not complete, but I just like the look of it and also think it's pretty big.
Could someone be kind enough to ID for me.
Cheers Scrumpy

Hi I'm no expert but it looks like a Harpoceras falciferum to me ?

Hi WestcoastRock,  Is the umbilical seam undercut. Cannot see in the photo. If yes, then it is Harpoceras falciferum.
Greetings,  TOARCIANJOHN

Thanks for the replies lads,
Is this a common ammonite for port Mulgrave?
I've only been collecting for 4 years or so but normally its Dacs or Hildi's I find down there.
Cheers Scrumpy

Hi Scrumpy
It's not that common, especially whole ones
Yours is a partial but very attractive, I must say
Well done

Nice find scrumpy, I am envious.  I have found loads of bits of this same species but never as complete as this.  Out of curiosity... how on earth does one get down to Port Mulgrave now?  Last time I was there was just before the major slip and saw the path just evaporate ... I know this is a climb down ... just wondered if you had a boat, a pedalo or if you had the ability to fly or walk on water?  Nice find.

Hi steveshq,
Unfortunately I don't have a boat or the ability to walk on water😀, but Port Mulgrave have some very handy fishermen who have dug some steps back into the cliff. Not sure how long they will last as the cliff hasn't stabilised yet.
